Vanair to release line of lighter, quieter electrified power equipment

An EPEQ Air 20
The Vanair EPEQ Air 20

Vanair's upcoming release of the EPEQ Electrified Power Equipment product line is a comprehensive, end-to-end system of zero emission and clean, quiet products.

Powered by Vanair's specifically developed line of ELiMENT Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries, EPEQ allows users to turn off the vehicle's engine and run the equipment needed on the jobsite. EPEQ is a fully self-contained and independent system that can be mounted on, or within, combustion engine vehicles, electric vehicles, or even on trailers. On electric vehicles, it can either work with the host vehicle's batteries, or independently.

Each component in the EPEQ line is designed and optimized to work within a battery-powered system. For instance, electric motors are designed to operate more efficiently than standard, untuned, electric motors, thereby extending the duration of battery power remaining. According to the company, the Lithium Iron Phosphate, ELiMENT batteries are an industry first, with a Battery Management System (BMS) that has the exclusive ability to discharge power while being charged itself.

The Smart Control I/O board has proprietary software technology designed to intelligently monitor and control all the components in the EPEQ system. Each component can communicate signals to and from the board allowing battery power supplied to be adjusted based on various factors such as: temperature, heat build-up, duty cycle, assigned function priorities, and power remaining. 

The innovative EPEQ line of proprietary developed products consists of: the ELiMENT Battery, electric motor-driven air compressors, electric-hydraulic power, AC power inverters, welders, Level 1 ad 2 EV charging, electric- driven underdecks, electric driven abovedecks, alternators/regulators, and DC-DC converters.
